A - Merky and light gold. The large glass covered in condensation looked amazing with a piece of orange hanging from the side. The head didnt stay long but some light lacey remains camped around the edge of the glass.
S - Fruity citrus with an amazing grainy finish. Light odors of the culture.
T - Wonderfully light, yet full. No bitter finish and lacking in the over hopping thats everywhere today. The orange might turn off some but I found it added great character and accented several of the natural notes in the brew.
M - Rich and creamy. The large amounts of grain protein made it feel almost like a nitro.
D - Very drinkable, even my beer hating Girlfriend will order a few. Serius sign of ease to indulge.
Overall, this is a staple in my line of beers. I have gone back many times since my first and love this brew. A must try, hell try it twice in one of thier giant bucket sized glasses.
Serving type: on-tap
